they are still polls. i think brown is probably ahead. i think the democrat is leading by 5 points. he will run a little bit ahead of president obama in the state. he appeals to some voters that obama does not appeal to simply because he's been there along time. i think brown ends up being safe. bill nelson has survived an onslaught of more than $20 million in outside ad spending. he's running against representative connie mack. while mack has had the potential to make it real contest, he has not. nelson is running it pretty close, six. . that's our it will end up on election day,. virginia was tied for very long time. there were 6000 poles in a row that showed it at a tie. -- there were 6000 polls in a row that showed it at a tie. we did the washington post poll that showed romney leading by a much larger number of earlier this week i do and think tim kaine is ahead by 3 points. on election day, this will be really close contest. i still give tim kaine the edge, a tort allen is not dead by any means. host: if you are interested in hearing from those candidates, we have covered man
